Iniesta burst a good game
Encouraged by Alexis, Barca impose their game against an Athletic decreased in the lineup and in the field for Thursday’s effort in Germany (2-0)
Athletic came at a bad time your visit to Camp Nou. Had just played a game as demanding as excellent in Gelsenkirchen and waiting for the Barcelona guard up after leading the rout of Pamplona. The League is a thing of Madrid and Barca and Athletic, finalist of the Cup and the European League favorite after his historic game at Old Trafford. Not that the red and whites were allowed to go with the flow and give in a spoon. His was a very estimable and honorable party, even very athletic, because neither discussed the penalty from Javi Martinez. It happens that is not the same racing Llorente, Muniain and Herrera with Toquero, Ibai and Inigo. Just when they joined the scene red and white figures, Barça had turned the contest. It is the club for jokes, and less at the Camp Nou.
Athletic alignment, in any case, desmereció the triumph of Barcelona.Helpful, reliable, well made, the boys worked superbly Guardiola in a crash like that devilish game that enacts Bielsa.
Athletic plays the animal at an intensity and at the same time occupies the field with an extremely rational.Although his is a socialized football, is designed from individual responsibility.The eleven Atletico play two games in one: his own and the team. The best way that probably no one escaquee and that all are pictured, the eleven committed to the cause of Bielsa.
The technical plan is so demanding Basque with its own team and the opponent, even in the case of Barcelona, ??a team that relies precisely on the best antidotes: the imbalance from the technique of each of his figures. There are few players more virtuous than Messi, Iniesta or Thiago, head yesterday in place of Xavi. And last night there was a moment for pause in a game of breathtaking pace. Unable to deploy in the field fluent Basque.
This being so, Messi sulking by the fierceness of the Athletic and the permissiveness of Lahoz, Barca tried to break the game from the outputs of Pique, aggressiveness and daring Alexis Thiago. No one plays better football than his exdiscípulo Alexis Bielsa. Unlike the Chilean attacking a player like Javier Martinez Athletic while Busquets seemed Garay and evoked the figure of Segarra.
About two figures for each team, sublime in the management of their plots, Alexis came and went until sliced ??the ball into the pressure line and armed counterattack Barca with Messi. The Flea read the play beautifully, quickly and accurately, and enabled with the left the entrance to the right of Iniesta, who took a shot out of his repertoire, in keeping with the party. Used to place the ball, Iniesta shot break, impossible to Iraizoz, hitherto very firm under the Athletic. The violence of the shot was so shocking Barcelona wheel as surprising for a swollen hypnotized by a party without truce or respite.
On sale in the lineup and dropped in the field for Thursday’s effort in Germany, the Athletic lacked offensive presence and arrival under Valdes.Determination of Barca forced to a defensive practice: seven times the frame topped Barca Iraizoz. Reached the break with the goal from Iniesta, Bielsa oxygenated his team with two players of renown, as Ander Herrera and Muniain, and soon sent to warm to Llorente. And then, as if aware that the party would empinar with the team owner of the Athletic, Barcelona met with a crook move: Iniesta took a free kick quickly, Tello earned him the space to Iraola and already in the area , fell to the entrance behind Javi Martinez. The whistle Lahoz, card in hand, let the fans in suspense: it was not known very well if admonished the front to simulate the fall or the defense to grab the opponent’s waist. The referee awarded penalty, showed him the yellow to red and white and Messi made no mistake with a shot set in the bottom left of Iraizoz. The Flea sang his goal number 36 in the league, 56 of the season, after attending 11.
The party had no more history than an opportunity to Muniain, whose shot rejected Pique, Valdes once exceeded. The party of Barcelona center was complete. Interventionist by nature, was present in both areas and took a shot to the body as the Atletico penalty demanded. Barca’s win was unquestionable for his mastery of the game and opportunities, especially for the Iniesta goal that earned throughout the game.
